AFTER a quiet couple of weeks, City announcements are set to pick up, with a slew of high street store firms due to give updates on the key Christmas trading period.

Analysts say anecdotal evidence suggests most of the UK retailers have traded strongly over the festive period, with less stock going into the January sales.

And a survey this week from the CBI showed retailers had a bumper Christmas with sales growth the highest since the 1980s boom.

Among areas of particular strength this Christmas are thought to be clothing and white and brown goods (such as kitchen equipment and electronics), especially digital products and household goods, said fund manager Gerrard.

Clothing retailers issuing trading updates next week include fashion chain Next tomorrow, Top Shop-to-Dorothy Perkins group firm Arcadia on Wednesday and department store firm Selfridges on Thursday.

Other companies due to report include:
